The summary:  Video of a TSA security agent giving a patdown to a 6 year old girl at an airport checkpoint has sparked public outrage over whether the personal rights line has been crossed.

The reaction:  I’m with the parents on this one.  Although I suppose just about anybody could try to sneak a weapon on board a plane, I can’t imagine that a 6 year old girl poses a high security threat.

I’m all for travel safety and spending a few extra minutes to make sure that we travel safely but this seems a little over the line.
